Along with the blurb news, Edeweiss also had some tentative release dates for the other Rebels novels, though I’m not sure how firm these dates will be. According to them, James S.A. Corey’s Han Solo novel is set for March 2014 and Kevin Hearne’s Luke Skywalker novel is set for January 2015, which seems a long ways off. This far out, those dates will probably change as we get closer to each release.

John Jackson Miller’s upcoming novel Kenobi has a new blurb.

In this original novel set between the events of Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith and Episode IV A New Hope, Obi-Wan Kenobi comes to the aid of the residents of Tatooine during his exile. But he struggles with his new mission when he realizes that protecting Luke Skywalker-the last hope of the galaxy-means setting aside his compassion and his Jedi warrior training, for the future of the galaxy lies not with Obi-Wan Kenobi, but with a mystical desert recluse known only by the name of Crazy Old Ben.

Last Friday was a red letter date for me as the actor that has had the honor of portraying and bringing voice to one of the most well known characters in not just Star Wars history, but film and televisions as well, Obi-Wan Kenobi, for well over a decade.  Red letter in a way that brought both happiness and great sadness.
